National momentum may be moving in the direction of life, but radical abortion activists and legislators here in Colorado are determined to enshrine unfettered access to the killing of innocent life.
As I write this on Friday afternoon, pro-life legislators up at the Denver Capitol are filibustering HB22-1279, a bill that will codify a right to abortion and prohibit any future restrictions to the heinous act. Food and cots have been brought in to help support the effort.
Just this past week, Focus on the Family’s Nicole Hunt spent over 12 hours up at the state house waiting to testify against the legislation. She was finally given the opportunity to do so at 2:20 A.M. The Capitol was flooded with like-minded champions for life. It was an emotionally charged atmosphere.
In the end, however, the bill passed out of committee along party lines by a vote of 7-4.
Stunning and shocking as it might sound, this legislation – which is unfortunately likely to pass – makes clear that pre-born children have no rights under Colorado law.
It’s wicked. It’s evil. It’s unconscionable.
Although the legislature appears stacked against the cause for life, we’ve done our best to call attention to the horrors of this radical legislation. We’ve urged our constituents here in Colorado to contact their representative and ask them to vote NO against such a barbaric law.
Focus on the Family is also co-sponsoring a pro-life rally up at the Denver Capitol on Saturday.
It’s important that we raise our voices in opposition to such cruelty.
Please join me in praying for a change of heart in these legislators and for a miraculous turn of the tide towards life here in Colorado.
